Nicole Curtis (Overy), M.S. CCC-SLP

Working with children has always felt natural for Nicole. She started out as the neighborhood babysitter and went on to receive a BS at Emerson College, followed by an MS in Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Arizona. After completing her Clinical Fellowship in Phoenix, AZ, she moved back to the greater Boston area and has spent the last several years working in both school and pediatric outpatient settings.  

When she is not practicing, Nicole loves spending time with her dog, Toby, writing short stories, and playing video games. She got married in a gorgeous desert wedding last November.
